March 5, 2017 – Support Life at St. Peter’s: Pledge 2017

Dear Members, Newcomers and Friends of St. Peter’s Church:

We are pleased to invite your involvement in Support Life at St. Peter’s: Pledge 2017, our annual fund-raising campaign through which individuals and households can join in the great ministry of giving to the mission, ministry, and vision of St. Peter’s.

The mission of God’s Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. St. Peter’s responds to this charge through dedicated worship offerings, robust formation programs and events for children, youth, and adults, pastoral care of those who suffer or seek healing, and continual engagement of outreach and social justice initiatives committed to respecting the dignity of every human being. Our ministry commits to improve congregational development unique to an urban parish, provide fellowship offerings to deepen parish-wide community, and identify ways to better care for one another within and beyond our doors. This ministry also is blessed with a world-renowned music program that feeds our souls on Sundays and many other occasions. Our vision is to become a community of bold followers of Jesus, a crowd that effects good change for the world, a place known for radical love and welcome, and a beacon of hope in Center City Charlotte. Your 2017 pledge will support St. Peter’s in extraordinary ways and bless others beyond measure.

As of Monday, February 27, 333 pledges totaling $890,800 have been received toward our $975,000 goal. The Annual Fund Leadership, Vestry, and Treasurer are grateful for each pledge received and seek a 100% investment in life at St. Peter’s from all members and newcomers. The Vestry adopted a 2017 budget at its January meeting based on pledges received and limited secondary income sources and hopes for more pledges in order to hire a part-time Communications Administrator and address certain ministry/program and property needs. To pledge online and make a difference in what we are able to do to the glory of God, visit www.st-peters.org/give, or you may offer your pledge at the Parish House.

If you would like a snapshot of our financials, the Financial Facts from 2016 about Life at St. Peter’s is provided. More specific financial information may be requested from the Parish Administrator, Leigh Dixon (704-749-6142).

There is abundance in community and in the ministry of giving, which we prayerfully hope you will join. Thanks for your consideration and support of life at St. Peter’s.

The Annual Fund Leadership, Vestry, and Treasurer of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church
